Mental Health

1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem each year in England, and we have made it our mission to support those who need it. Across our departments, we are committed to educating around mental health and encouraging people to seek support if and when required.

At Rotherham United Community Trust, we listen and work towards individual needs and goals. Whether it’s a distraction, a listening ear or a self-esteem boost, we are here to help people feel better through our various weekly sessions.

What we do

It is proven that taking part in physical activity releases chemicals in our brains which make us feel good. Not only does sport make us feel physically fitter, it also enhances our mental state.

We host a range of physical activity sessions where participants can socialise through being active, resulting in them being in a better frame of mind to express their feelings and open up. However, we also appreciate that not everyone is able to exercise for whatever reason, and therefore also offer less physically demanding sessions such as our coffee morning.


  • Badminton: This free, fun and casual turn up and play badminton session is for anyone experiencing mental health problems. We provide all the equipment you need and we welcome all genders and abilities to join in.
  • Inclusion Football: This session allows people to take part in a competitive game of football facilitated by our friendly staff. It’s also an opportunity to meet new people and create new friendships. These sessions are open for adults regardless of age and ability.
  • Men’s Fitness: Statistics reveal that men are less likely to open up and seek support around their mental health. Our supportive and motivating staff lead circuit training sessions to provide physical activity for men who are going through periods of difficulty or low mood.
  • Walking Football: Whether someone is looking to get back into the game or try a new hobby, we welcome all genders to get involved in this slower paced version of the game which benefits both physical and mental health.
